08.07.2005 Chess match St Petersburg – New York via Internet

On Sunday, July 24, 2005, the world will witness a chess match that has not been seen in 60 years – the first distance chess match to be held between the old Soviet Union, (Russia) and the USA since the end of WWII and the start of the cold war.

Mention the word Chess and the first thing that comes to people’s minds is a pair of old men in dark stuffy rooms, huddled over a chessboard.  The game has changed.  The era of exciting fast paced chess has arrived and audiences will see a distant chess match series of 10-, 20- or 30-minute games between chess grandmasters from different parts of the world. 

The broadcast will reach somewhere between 300 to 500 million viewers.  This show is not just about a chess match - it's about history being made!  The show will air in over 50 countries and 30 major markets in the US.  In addition, we will hold an event at the Russian Embassy in Washington DC, on July 12, 2005.
